Tamron M13VG2713IR mega-pixel vari-focal lens
Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka) has announced the release of a 3-mega-pixel 1/2.7” 2.7-13mm F/1.4 vari-focal lens (Model: M13VG2713IR) that supports high resolution throughout the visual and the near-IR spectrum.
Imagers are migrating toward higher resolution as high-quality images are required for security applications; High-end mega-pixel cameras are increasingly put to night-time surveillance use. Addressing the growing need in the market, Tamron developed an industry-leading high-resolution vari-focal lens that supports ultra-high resolution compatible with 3-mega-pixels throughout the visual light and the near-IR spectrum.
- Distinguished optical performance 'Compatible with 3 mega-pixels'
Leading technologies such as aspherical lens and extraordinary LD lens were employed together with state-of-the-art optical design to achieve high-fidelity imaging compatible with 3-mega-pixel cameras, exceeding full HD1080P resolution. The lens boasts the fastest F-number F/1.4, which effectively assures mega-pixel image-quality even in low lighting conditions.
- Mega-pixel imaging sustainable under IR lighting
The imaging quality of conventional lenses is often compromised under a near-IR light compared with that under a visual light. Tamron considers image quality degradation in the “night-time mode” to devalue the advantage of mega-pixel cameras. The new lens maintains high-quality 3-mega-pixel imaging throughout the visual and near-IR spectrum, without quality degradation when a camera is switched to “night-mode”.
- Wide-utility focal length of 2.7 – 13mm and wide-angle horizontal FOV angle of 125.1°
Mega-pixel image quality is assured over the most widely-utilised focal-length range of 2.7 – 13mm. The focal length of 2.7mm at the wide-angle (FOV angle of 125.1°) is especially useful to obtain a view of an entire room from a corner point.
- Reduction of colour blur by elimination of chromatic aberration
A new optical design eliminates chromatic aberration to the limit, resulting in images without annoying colour blur. Incoming light reflection on the lens surface is thoroughly suppressed by means of state-of-the-art lens design to prevent its incursion into output images. Employing multi-coating technology also assures flare-free and ghost-free imaging.
- Highest-precision and highest-quality lens construction that maximises optical performance
All lens components are designed with the highest precision and produced using the most advanced manufacturing technology. In-house manufacturing know-hows are extensively employed to eliminate image degradation such as image shifts and unbalanced blurs.
- Improved lens integration
Obtrusion of the lens element at the lens mount surface is eliminated to improve lens compatibility with general cameras.
